at the consulate in benghazi. secretary of state hillary clinton was scheduled to testify to congress in a closed intelligence briefing today. it's been suggested the u.s. was warned about that attack in libya three days before it happened. the administration insists they haven't seen intelligence about "significant advanced planning" for that attack. but interestingly the white house is now calling the deadly assault on the u.s. consulate in benghazi a terrorist attack for the first time. and it happened on the anniversary of 9/11. fancy that. u.s. relations with israel at least on the surface appear to be getting much worse as president obama continues to say he doesn't have time to meet with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu. iran continues to march toward nuclear weapons. syria continues to murder its own people. it all suddenly feels much worse than it has for some time. here's the question, how satisfied are you with u.s. policy in the middle east? go to cnn.com/caffertyfile. post a comment. or go to our post on "the situation room" facebook page. wolf. >> jack, thank you. >>> meanw
the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. four americans were killed including our ambassador to libya but when asked about the attack president obama wouldn't give a clear answer exactly what happened. as you by now know the obama administration insisted the deadly violence grew out of a spontaneous protest. for the first time yesterday white house press secretary said this. it is i think self-evident that what happened in benghazi was a terrorist attack. our embassy was attacked violently and the result was four deaths of american officials. doug mckelway is live at white house now. doug, what is the latest from the white house there this morning? >> reporter: arthel, seemed after that statement that you just read from jay carney aboard air force one yesterday, after so many mixed signals from the white house and mixed messages from monday that would signal some kind of alignment in white house messaging. after the plane, air force one landed in miami for the univision forum yesterday, the president obama sent an entirely different signal. here's the president. >> what we've seen ove
to deal with the situation and the killings that happened in benghazi, 24 hours ago now. >> we appreciate you being with us. thank you. the historical context of the national tragedy cannot be understated, the last time a diplomat of this stature was assassinated was 1979, when the u.s. ambassador to afghanistan was killed in a gun battle. the events of yesterday felt similar to the era of weakness that president jimmy carter presided over. on a day when americans hoped to pause in remembrance of the victims of the 9/11 terror attacks, they were instead greeted with the face of a new age of terrorists, even worse, greeted with a president unwilling or unable to confront them. but the violence on september 11, 2012, didn't start libya. it began when radical islamists in egypt who, were outrained over a u.s.-made film that insults muhammad, and burned the american flag and replaced it with one similar to that of al qaeda. the white house issue aid staimentd apologizing to the radicals, saying, quote, the embassy condemns misguided efforts to hurt the religious feelings of muslims. the presi

in benghazi that killed ambassador chris stooerevens and three oth measures. members from both parties want more information. >> the issue goes beyond the day-to-day political infighting and you have members of both parties asking for more details in part because of the gravity of the situation and because there's an evolving eleven the information that's becoming public. john kerry, who heads the senate foreign relations committee, has put together a letter he sent to the state department with some members of the republican party as well asking for more information. now, some of what we are seeing, some of that pressure does have a more partisan edge where you have critics in the republican party who have put letters forward to secretary clinton, to the u.n. ambassador, susan rice specifically talking about what they believe were misstatements by the administration or a lack of being, i guess, savvy enough to suspect a terrorist attack, which some republican members like john mccain, like kelly ayotte have been saying was more likely than a spontaneous mob reaction. so there is a bit of th
in the attack on consulate in benghazi last night. rich edson following the developing story from the white house. rich? >> ashley, fox news's ed henry reports that senior administration official telling him and although it is early and they haven't made determinations yet there are early signs this was a planned attack, they urge we're still in the early stages figuring out exactly what has gone on. this after the president spent the morning at white house and state department meeting with folks and making promises that the u.s. will seek justice for the four murders in libya of folks in the u.s. state department. meanwhile positive romney saying much is a result of the u.s., the white house, excuse me is sending mixed signals on foreign policy. >> we will not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act. make no mistake, justice will be done. >> as i have watched over the past 3 1/2 years the president has had some successes. he has had some failures. it is a hit or miss approach but it has not been based upon sound foreign policy. >> there was some discussion
is stand back. for example, after the attack on the benghazi consulate that the right thing to do is you say nothing because when an american ambassador is killed, that probably indicates that some serious mistake happened. that's a good moment to say nothing and to wait for facts to emerge. this president has a record that is difficult to defend in a lot of respects. job creation, bad, economic growth, too slow. and his foreign policy initiative looks like it is going up in flames. that's the place where mitt romney should go. and of course president obama and his team wake up every morning and say how can we make today be about anything other than that? unfortunately so far they're doing pretty well. >> you know, i think this president has a tremendous record to go out there and tell the american people. stabilizing the economy, 30 months of consecutive job growth, bin laden dead, gadhafi gone, al qaeda weakened. look, we shouldn't run this election on the republican terms. nor should president obama have to respond every time mitt romney makes a mistake and try to prop him up. mitt ro
